  1. I've spent a lot of my Dirt Rallying time recently on the Racenet Clubs, I now run several of these and having spent a lot of time on the website I have some suggestions and potentially some issues. I don't want to knock racenet at all, I think it's fantastic, an excellent way of bringing all platforms together for one big community of Dirt Rally fans. Here's a list of some ideas I've had to make it easier to use, or to expand the platform, what do you think? 1. An App: A phone App for this game would be great, log in with your racenet ID and have 3 main sections: Leaderboards, Challenges, Clubs, a quick direct link to these on the homepage of the app would not only make things far easier for the user, but I'd assume not surfing a website each time to arrive at your desired page will save on bandwidth requirements which there's been issues with. (I think this would see a rise in regular users of the site/app, due to the convenience, and the advertising potential from that would be significant maybe?) . Also, having all the timetrial leaderboards, on the website/app, where you could filter to see your racenet friends, would remove a major flaw in the game currently, which is easy access to leaderboards. 2. The ability to click on another racenet members name (One who you've already friended maybe), and see what clubs they belong to, what console and console username they use, maybe a list of codemasters games the racenet member has registered in. This would all be useful for building a racenet community, maybe an option for messaging between members. 3. The capability to search for, and join clubs "in game" from the clubs menu, instead of using the website? Or at least if invited to a club via the website, then have the invite appear in game, and the option to accept/decline from the in game clubs menu screen? Some minor faults/anomolies I have come across on the website. 1. For some reason, a user's console name is used on the latest results page on the website, despite the racenet name being used on all other tables and menus, on website and in game. The same users name can even change from stage to stage if they moved from their games console to steam for instance, and it won't match their racenet name which is quoted on the championship standings page. 2. When opening a club and viewing the latest results page, the default page should be the current championship, and if possible the current event. Not the earliest championship available. Which could be months ago. Needless time wasted on every visit to a results page 3. Clubs filter sorting: After filtering a leaderboard on the website to show your racenet friends (or any other filter, steering wheel/control pad for instance), the option to arrange by "total" time does not work, even after selecting it, it continues to sort by the individual stage time.

    Dirt Rally League tables - open to all

    This has moved on in the last few weeks. Check out the link above, there have been a good number of people competing, and the first league season just started. If you like the idea, then feel free to join the qualifying group this month. Hopefully Codemasters will add a tier system within their clubs in future, but until then this is a good way to compete with similar ability competition.
  3. http://dirtrally2-0leagues.webflow.io/ Take a look at the link. As clubs does not allow tiers. Then an attempt has been made to make our own. This is a Dirt Rally 2.0 league. Enter the qualifying group now, and as of next month a league will be created with 4 tiers, including promotion and relegation at the end of each month. Qualifying is open to all in the club below, if you like the idea, then encourage more to join, the more there merrier. https://dirtrally2.dirtgame.com/clubs/club/336524

    Club Leagues/Divisions

    There is someone attempting to create a league system, it would of course be fantastic if this could be an option within clubs anyway, so a club can have various tiers. But as it is, the long winded effort of moving people between clubs (tiers) after each month is the best option currently. The guy running the site below is willing to do this, so good luck to him. All are welcome to join, there's a facebook group too, all info is on the link. Starts in June. https://dirtrallyleagues-576dd9.webflow.io/?fbclid=IwAR0Boz9AVl8qmXJ8VW1w1VAY2U0SyWftSwz0qkNlGAqhWDK2CKbGGd5xYuA
  5. I also brought this one up myself last year, I've not done an AI monthly or weekly for a long while, but it appears it's not been solved.
  6. I have brought this up before, and in my case worked out how it happens, do you play across two consoles? Such as have a profile on a friends PS4 which you also play on? Notice my post below from a while ago:
  7. Not specific to this update, nor specific to a console. Issues with clubs: Clubs filter (in game): When filtering clubs leaderboard to show friends, then your own time disappears, so although you see your friends, the comparison is gone. Clubs filter sorting (on website): After filtering a leaderboard on the internet to show your racenet friends only, the option to arrange by "total" time does not work, even after selecting it, it continues to sort by the individual stage time. Clubs leaderboard (Website on phone): Why no "diff" column for the total time after each stage? Surely the most important statistic?
  8. Not specific to this update, but having people on the scoreboards, such as this person who is top of these two RX leaderboards, makes a mockery of the whole game system. If this can happen, and is clearly happening here, then how are we to know that any top times we aspire to beat within the whole game are valid? I only tried 3 stages, and only 1 class of car, and found these 2 glaring errors, I can only assume it's rife.
  9. You must be PS4 console friends in order for the filter to show. Also make sure you are in the same conditions (wet/dry) and the same class of vehicle, because every class of vehicle and conditions has a different leaderboard.
  10. This failure is damaging Codemasters reputation now. Almost everyone in my club has messaged me to say they can’t get on now. Because it’s been failing during prime time since Sunday. Fortunately our rally is open until Monday. But for many others this failure will have shaped their results.

    Divisions in Clubs

    This was a recent idea from people in my club to keep it interesting. Several lose interest after a couple of stages when they are already out of the running for the win. However if they were racing for a promotion instead of the Championship, or racing to avoid relegation then that'd keep the desire alive through the whole month (as we have monthly championships) I recognise this is quite a lot of programming on the website to incorporate divisions within a club and promotions and relegations. But I have come up with alternative methods which allow users to set up divisions of their own. The method would mean that there are several clubs, for instance, if there were 3 divisions, then each division would have a club associated. The club owner would then be responsible for the right people being in the right club each month. Here's 2 methods of doing that conveniently. 1. In addition to the options of "promote" and "kick" for members, then include an option such as "suspend" or "block", which prevents that user from entering any championship within that club until they are unblocked. In this scenario, all members of the league ladder are invited to, and join, all the divisions, the person in control of the League then just ensures that each member is unblocked for the particular division they are competing in. 2. Allow players to accept invites to clubs from the racenet clubs page within game, this way, the owner of the league can kick the relegated/promoted players from the club division they were in, and invite them to their new club division. And it'll be sorted with the press of a button when they next play the game. (problem here is member points records would likely be lost, I prefer option 1) Obviously in an ideal world, this could be arranged automatically all within one club, it'd save on setting up the rally championship multiple times in different clubs, and also save on losing historical data for members (which I assume happens when members are "kicked") Another addition possibility that was recommended by members of my club, to up the interest, was to allow teams, of 2 or 3 or however many, so their times/points can get summed together for each event, that way the better racers can be paired with the lesser racers to up the competitiveness. I'm pretty sure that's been asked for on here previously though. Thanks for reading. Andy
  12. PlayStation user. If I have bought all the DLC on my PlayStation (my primary console) then shouldn’t other people using the same console be able to purchase the DLC cars from the garage in myteam?My father can race the DLC stages, but cannot race any stages which require a DLC vehicle as they never appear in the garage. Also he cannot race the stages with D+ written on them, not sure why this is.
  13. I currently have a preferred tuning for each location on my cars. That's 8 out of 8 on the gravel tuning. Can we get another save slot for the new location?
  14. Bigger things than mine and FarmerCee’s clubs! Surely there’s nothing more important ! 😄

    Something is coming closer...

    Pleased we seem to be getting a new rally, although if that was the title on youtube, then I doubt it's a whole new season
